Oh dear, you may have noticed I was MIA yesterday, which was unplanned, but also no big deal. This week is clearly trying to get me, but HA! I am prevailing. At least for now ...
Tuesday I wasn't at work, but I was at two medical appts - one that took all morning, after which I had 1 1/2 hours reprieve, before another appt that took all afternoon! Neither were anything serious, it was mostly waiting while the respective physicians were behind on their schedules. But nonetheless, I was really tired on Tuesday evening - waiting with no indication of how long it will last stresses me and wears me out.
The good thing is that on Tuesday evening, I finished the first of the pair of Christmas socks I'm knitting for myself:
I truly lurve this - both the sock and the knitting part! It's Lollipop Yarns in the Christmas Waltz colorway. Since I knew there was a good chance I'd want to knit yesterday, I immediately started on sock #2, so I could at least get cast on and the cuff ribbing underway.
Yesterday, not to be outdone by Tuesday, more medical stuff - but this time, it was for The Tim. He had his colonoscopy scheduled, and I was the "support person" designated to accompany/wait for him. Things looked promising, as they took him back to get started right on time. But then it actually turned out to be 3 hours until he was finished! He said there was a code called at one point, and then who knows what else was/was not happening. The good thing is that they have a computer board set up in the waiting room and you can see exactly what part of the whole thing your person is in - for example, it shows the first three letters of the last name, first initial, and then, "In Prep, "Procedure in progress," and "In Recovery." So it's not like I thought the procedure was taking that long.
I got started where I'd left off the night before:
And, by the time he was finally finished and we could go home, I had made it to the place where I will start the heel flap! So although it all took a long time, I did get lots of knitting done!
However, by last night, I was *really* tired - I mean, I'd still been catching up with the day before! Today I have to be at work until 6:30, because I'm part of a program presentation, so it's even a better thing than usual that tomorrow is Friday, you know???
Yesterday, when we got home, this was happening. All's well that ends well. 😊💖
